Mixed Media Card using Distress Oxides – Sassy Scrappers DT

Hello again

I am back to share with you all a card I made for a very dear friend of mine featuring my all time favourite ink pads….Distress Oxides!! There is a process video which you can watch also.

This is what I created, I don’t do cards very often but after making this I may have to start creating them again as I had so much fun.

For the background I started off by inking my craft mat with Distress Oxides – Worn LipstickWilted VioletCracked Pistachio and Broken China. I sprayed them with some water and using the dabbing technique, I gently dabbed my cardstock onto the colours until I was happy.

I splattered some Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide using a paint brush and then inked around the edges using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide.

My next step was to create the flowers and I used my mini black archival ink and Vicki Boutin’s Floral stamp and die set. Then using my water pen, I painted the flowers using Worn LipstickWilted Violet and Fossilized Amber.

The sentiment and leaves stamp set is created by Richard Garay – Make Amazing Happen and I used my mini black archival ink for stamping. Then to finish it off I added some white thread and mounted my flowers using foam tape.
